Question about Canon Powershot SD450 / IXUS 55 Digital Camera
I go to the mall and movies and im taking pictures and then i put it away and my friend wants to take a picture and my camera wont turn on at all when i try to turn it on i have no clue on what to do
Try this: with the battery installed and battery door open, take a pencil, fine tip screwdriver, or anything long and skinny and push the tip of it into the little nub circled in the picture here. There's a spring inside that little nub... keep the spring depressed and try to turn on the camera. If it works, then either a small piece of plastic broke off the battery door or the nub got broken/pushed in too far for the battery door to trigger it. Try using a dab of hot glue to keep the nub pushed into the down position.

Solution # 3 posted by MeKiwi regarding the little switch behind the battery door was right on for my case. My is a Canon IXUS 55. At one point, I could not turn it on with a fully charged battery. Only after I pushed that little flap shown on the picture with a red circle that it turned on right away. After one more power cycle, the little flap disappeared, and a little spring came into view. My camera is now back in operation. Good tip! Thanks.

I sort of have the same problem, that is pushing on the on button flashes momentarily and the lens pops out a fraction then quits. The screen is blank and pressing on the on button again may retract the lens (which is out just a fraction) or not. The odd thing is that if you press on the display button while turning the camera on, it stay on and the screen goes to set the time. Pressing the menu button takes you to the use of the camera and it works, takes pictures and otherwise seems to work ok in this fashion. The problem is that it will only go on this way, and also nothing gets saved in memory. Setting the date and time, then setting it turns the camera off, then you have to go through this all over again. I think something came lose, or the connection to the internal memory must have gone bad, or perhaps the internal memory itself will not save anything thus for this problem. I don't know if anyone has run into this problem when you say your screen is blank or not, perhaps there is a solution to this problem that I am not aware of, thanks...
